Ask Curbed: What's the Maximum Rent Increase Allowed?

New, 21 comments

Another week, another rent question from a reader who needs some guidance--and maybe also to live in a situation where he doesn't feel so powerless. First off, what does the lease you signed stipulate, young fellow?

"I live in a large apt complex under rent control. I signed a 6 month lease and it’s up in 2 months. My apt complex said I have to sign another 6 month contract and they raised the rent 2.6%. I thought I could live there month to month after the lease was up and under rent control don’t they have to wait 1 year before they raise the rent? And I thought the max rental increase is 4% a year." · Ask Curbed: When Do They Bring Out A Crane? [Curbed LA]
